Kingston Resorts® to Undergo $50 Million Dollar Multi-Phase Transformative Renovation and Repositioning

USA, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. March 17, 2020

EOS Investors LLC (EOS), a privately held real estate investment firm, has unveiled plans for a multi-phase $50 million dollar renovation of the Kingston Resorts® properties, beginning with a comprehensive $20 million dollar investment in the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort followed by a $30 million dollar investment in the Embassy Suites Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resort. The transformative renovation of Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort is set for completion by June 2020 and will bring EOS's vision to life for the future of these legacy properties, which includes a repositioning and reintroduction of the Hilton property as one of the premier oceanfront resort destinations in the market.

Phase one for Kingston Resorts' renovation, which began in January 2020, includes a complete redesign and upgrade of all 385 guest rooms at Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort. Room configurations will also be diversified in an effort to accommodate families, multi-generational travel and group needs. Bathrooms will undergo complete modernizations, including the addition of walk-in showers.

"As we look to improve upon Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort's success, we see incredible value and opportunity in elevating and enhancing the unique characteristics, offerings and experiences of the property," said Jonathan Wang, EOS president. "Making this significant investment in the resort is consistent with EOS's overall focus to provide premier hospitality experiences in strong, destination markets."

The renovation will feature a complete reimagination of Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort's current outdoor dining concept with a transformation into an upscale, social setting outfitted with inviting seating, fire pits and games, offering light fare and beverages throughout the day. Unique design elements will include floor-to-ceiling wood dividers that will offer guests a more private experience while still enjoying the Atlantic breezes and views of the ocean. Other public spaces and common areas undergoing renovation include the Dunes Ballroom, the property's 16th floor meeting and event space offering panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, as well as the hotel's oceanfront pool, which will be upgraded with new lounge chairs and umbrellas. Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort's signature oceanfront bar will also be refreshed and expanded to maximize guests' access to unparalleled ocean views and fresh beverages.

"From our refreshed dining outlets to our newly configured and beautifully renovated guestrooms, we're excited to offer an elevated experience for our guests," said Bob Barenberg, general manager, Kingston Resorts®. "For more than 45 years, Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort has created so many memorable experiences for our guests, and we look forward to welcoming the next generation of travelers building memories along the Grand Strand."

Kingston Resorts, owned by EOS, encompasses two market-leading, premium-branded full-service resorts, the 255-suite Embassy Suites Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resort and the 385-room Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort as well as more than 1,600 residential condominiums and townhomes. The 157-acre beachfront campus boasts direct access to Myrtle Beach and the Atlantic Ocean, countless guest amenities and is the largest and most comprehensive oceanfront conference venue between Atlantic City, New Jersey and West Palm Beach, Florida. The resort features 100,000+ square feet of meeting and event space, multiple food and beverage outlets, more than

a dozen swimming pools, a recently constructed spa and fitness facility (Spa33 and 78Fitness) and a plethora of outdoor water activities.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
